I’ve had the Celestina Reversible Capelet from Pinup Girl Clothing’s Magically Made collection since September, but between the broken ankle and all of my festive fashions, I haven’t really had a chance to share it…until now!
I love the shape of the cape, even from the back:
It’s easy to accessorize with my Hufflepuff pin from Universal, and my Duchess bangles from Splendette:
The best part is the fact that the caplet is reversible, so it’s really like having two pieces! Even just unbuttoning it gives the outfit a totally different look:
And completely reversing it is even more fantastic!
Just for fun, some pictures with Nymphadora Tonks’ wand..she’s my favorite Hufflepuff!
I’m so glad I was finally able to add a cape to my wardrobe, and one that makes me feel like Minerva McGonagall is even more amazing than I could have dreamed!
Bunny received an awesome gift for her birthday in July…two tickets to go to Powell Hall and hear the St. Louis Symphony play the score to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire while they showed the movie on a big screen. Today was the day, and she asked me to with her…we had an amazing time!
We got there just after the doors opened, and had a fun time walking around in our Pinup Girl Clothing House Harlequins, people watching, and enjoying an “Enchanted Brew” at the Met Bar:
The ushers at Powell Hall are extremely nice, and we had no trouble finding our seats, which provided us with a great view, and perfect acoustics:
The performance was outstanding. The St. Louis Symphony was so good, and so unobtrusive, that I occasionally forgot we were hearing a live orchestra. The crowd was great, too. It was clear that everybody there was enjoying the show, and it was really fun to get to see a Harry Potter movie with other fans!
This was my first St. Louis Symphony experience, and I really hope it isn’t my last…everything about our time at Powell Hall was so much fun!
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about our planned trip to Universal Orlando this summer, where we hope to see all of the Harry Potter sites. This of course let me to think about my wardrobe, and my Pinup Girl Clothing Yellow House Harlequin skirt…I’m a proud HufflePUG!
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;
Turkey and Bunny may outnumber me with their Ravenclaw harlequins, but I’m still a proud Hufflepuff!
I also have the perfect accessories for this print, including two different (and different-toned) Splendette stacks. I’m so glad they recently released some new colors, and especially GLITTER, Duchess Bangles!
I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve worn some variation of this outfit recently,,, the colors and harlequin pattern are so fun, and I love being able to share this sartorial geekery with my children!
“‘For I’m the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.
There’s nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can’t see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be…
So put me on! Don’t be afraid!
And don’t get in a flap!
You’re in safe hands (though I have none)
For I’m a Thinking Cap!'”
“‘Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;'” The Sorting Hat in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Bunny, the biggest fan of Harry Potter in our house, has been anxiously anticipating the release of Pinup Girl Clothing’s “House Harlequins” collection ever since I first told her about it…I don’t know, several months ago? And Turkey was also excited to hear that they were going to be releasing some men’s bowling shirts along with the various skirts, dresses, cardigans, and women’s tops that make up the collection.
Well, my two Ravenclaws are very happy to finally have their Blue House Harlequins! Bunny got another Little Jun skirt, which is the same style as her Lady Wrestlers skirt. I also got her a pair of cobalt hoop earrings to go with it, and she already had a Ravenclaw bracelet, which is the perfect accessory!
Trying to take pictures of the two of them is always interesting, and has been since they were toddlers. There was photobombing, hugging that looked more like strangling, sassing, and general goofing around. In short, they’re siblings, and have fun tormenting both each other and their mother, but at least they look stylish while they’re doing it!
